This is the official support page for iStethoscope Pro, the professional version of the original iStethoscope program. If you are looking for the support page for iStethoscope (free!) please click here.
Please note that this app is intended to be used for entertainment purposes and as a demonstration of the technology. It is not intended to be used for the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, or the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease and should not be used as a medical device. We are working to develop fully certified iPhone apps that may be used as medical devices in the future.
iStethoscope Pro allows you to set up the program for every possible different device, headphones, microphones, ears and body types. The program is hugely configurable, allowing you to change every major setting in the program. If you have a problem, then please read the help page and comments first. If you still can't find a solution, then leave a query below and I'll reply on this page within a day or 3. If you enjoy this application, please check out the popular science book: The Undercover Scientist
